organisms provided a basic understanding of lowland rice field ecology and successional dynamics.  Biotic factors limiting growth of cyanophytes were identified and isotopic labelling of blue-green algae showed invertebrate grazers (zooplankton and neckton) to be a major limiting factor to growth of cyanopytes. Management of grazers increased soil fertility and protein content of rice. USA & SE Asia.   Client: UNDP

Philippines  1980-1983

Aquatic / Soil Ecology. Research to increase the natural fertility of water and sediments for sustainable production of lowland rice. Isolation of toxic strains, P-solubilising and effective N2-fixing strains of blue-green for 1980-85 inoculation trials with grazer management interventions; natural agents blocking nitrifiation/denitrification and ricefield management to reduce N losses were subjected to extensive field trials and significant gains in N2 fixed were achieved.
